Now, the cheapest daily ticket will cost more than $100. The one-day adult peak ticket price rose from $135 to $149, while the price of the one-day regular ticket, which blocks out some dates, rose from $117 to $129.

The price of admission to get into the Magic Kingdom has gone up again. Daily parking will increase by 25% to $25. Here's the full rundown of current prices.

Still, some fans were devastated and bemoaned the price hikes.

"These prices are insane", wrote one on Facebook. The world's largest theme-park operator has also increased prices and created options for guests to enter early, reserve rides in advance and even buy tickets for just evening events.

Don't expect Disneyland to get less crowded, says Robert Niles, editor of ThemeParkInsider.com.

"Extremely disappointed", wrote another person on Facebook.

A Hollywood A-lister accused of sexually assaulting an 18-year-old man in a local restaurant is not at all Nantucket. Spacey said he did not remember such an encounter but apologized if the allegations were true.

"It's not about making kids happy anymore, it's about making money", a mother lamented on Twitter.

But Disney also had defenders.

Less than a year ago, prices were raised by up to 18 percent.

Months ahead of its summer opening, Disney has announced a steep incline in its prices, with the cheapest one-park ticket now costing park-goers $104.

The increase in ticket prices have always been aimed at crowd control, and with the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy Edge which will feature two attractions and a 14-acre expansion, it's still not clear if tickets price increases will limit the crowds.

The immersive, 14-acre theme park land at Disneyland Resort will officially open in June, according to a Barrons interview with The Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger.
